my home ||guest bedroom

July 18, 2013

in case you’re just joining, this whole week is a home tour room by room of my home. so far you’ve seen my living room,  dining nook + bedroom.  so here’s another bedroom, today.  this is actually the guest bedroom.  this room just has an amazing aura.  it’s hard to explain.  the exposed, painted brick adds a great texture to work with.  adding consistency from room to room, this one is a very creamy white [ but not creamy on the yellow side].  the duvet is the same color shade as the walls to add to allow for seamless lines for the eye, but adding textural interest.  each room  in the house has original hardwood floors, so that warmth is always there regardless of the stark white walls. 

i also found this wonderful mid century find on craigs list [ they are amazing for little treasures!].  it is the perfect size for a dresser + nightstand table.  these super duper cool floor pillows are from DENY designs. they use the works from artists + print them on pillows. who wouldn’t want an ocean on their floor:)

adding the empty vintage gold frames on the wall were a little of a challenge to hang [ thank goodness for adhesive velcro], but bring a little warmth to the wall almost acting as a headboard.

once again, plants take a main stage in the room. large + small. just that extra bit of organic +  life to help you breathe in the fresh air each morning. it also balances the height of the brick wall across to other angles of the room + balances the height of the hanging cord set .

and with most of my rooms, black + charcoal tend to be the color that is splashed throughout.  as long as the color is balanced a little bit throughout the room it creates a balance for your viewing. here you see black in the pillows, the AMAZING ida throw from one of my favorite companies, gretel home, in the floor pillows, the rubber basket housing the plant + in the hanging cord set.

this little corner area is perfect for putting your shoes on, reading, or using the chair to place your things as you go to bed at night. this chair is a vintage find that pairs with the one up in the living room, however i chose not to reupholster this one. i just placed a little sheep skin throw over it matching the rest of the tones of the room mixing some additional texture.

stay tuned tomorrow for the office tour:)
